VERY nicely done, Gweigert !!
I bought the "Premade Kit" last year for my grandkids and it
was a blast to put together. even tho it was a pre-cut kit project,
there were several pieces that did not fit well and I had to make duplicates.
also, it had several plastic parts that I duplicated in wood to get it to be
all wood as much as possible. my kit has 4 modules that you can swap around
and if certain load and exit points aren't exactly spot on, it will not work.
this is a very fun project and I admire anyone that makes one from scratch
using just shop tools and plans.
again, VERY well done !! looking forward to seeing more modules to go with it.
I find that the more mechanical noise it makes, the more fun it is to watch.
also, if you paint some of the balls different colors, the kids can pick a color and
watch "their" ball go through the complete cycle.
there is no educational alternative to having a front row seat in the School of Hard Knocks.
